How to Measure

Before you start

Some simple things to make your measurements easy.

You may want to have someone help you. Tools you’ll need; soft measuring tape in inches, pen and paper, shoes you plan to wear most with jeans. 

1. Outseam

Measure down the outside of your leg from your waist to where you want the jeans to land on the side of your shoe.


2. Inseam 

Measure down from your crotch to the inside of where the jean will land on the inside of your leg.


3. Rise

Hold the measuring tape about an 1/2 inch under your belly button, pull it down and up through your legs, up your backside to the top of your hips. Don't measure too tight!


4. Waist

Measure around the waist where you want to wear the jeans. Make sure the tape is snug, but not tight, but not hanging loose.

5.  Hips

Measure around the widest part of your hips not pulling too tight.

6. Thigh

Measure around your thigh about ½ inch under your crotch.

7. Knee

Measure around your knee cap with room for one finger.

8. Ankle

Measure around the bony part of your ankle with room for two fingers.
